Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm an adult and I simply adored this book! Cabot has the teen voice down pat, plus she doesn't sugar-coat the real issues and situations that face high school girls today. I think Mia is a great, solid female character that will have girls of all ages relating to her in some way or another. A word of caution, though: don't expect to find the Disney movie in this book! This "Princess" is nowhere near the screen version. And while I'm a fan of the movie as well, the differences between the two make the book all the more refreshing. Mia is a complete contradiciton: she is what every girl wants to be, yet at the same time she already is every girl. Yes, she tends to whine a little too much, but what fourteen-year-old girl doesn't? "Diaries", though filled with pop references that will likely become obsolete (even now, four years later, how many girls go gooey-eyed for Leonardo anymore?), will no doubt be read for many years on down the line. Reading this series is like making a new best friend!

I have all the princess diary books! They are great! Mia has to deal with stuff everyone goes through like: being picked on by the cheer leaders, having no breasts a parents divorce and being pushed to hard. At first when I saw this book I doubted I would like it, I thought it might be a book about a perfect princess who I can not relate to in the least. But when I read a few pages I knew it was worth the money!

I really enjoyed this book. After seeing the Princess Diaries movie, I thought I should read the book. It was not like the movie, but in a pleasant way. This book is great; funny and touching. Minus the fact that Mia is a princess, I found myself relating to Mia on a fair number of levels.
This is the story about a young teenage girl who finds out that her father is a prince, making her a princess. At first, she's shocked and upset. Then she has to put up with princess lessons from her grandmother on her father's side, whom of which, she's not very close with.
Great beginning to a great series.

Great book. Finally there is a good princess book. It is a long read but worth it, so very much worth it. Mia is a normal girl who has no clue she is heir to the Genovian throne. Learning from a somewhat odd grandmother, she must learn to be a princess.

This book earned its one star because of the humor in it. Much of it was unintentional however.
I am amazed this book is in print. Everything but the content is aimed for young girls. It has a few positive messages, but even then contradicts itself later on. I had to read this book to see if it and the movie were acceptable for my little cousin. She almost didn't get to see the movie.
Mia is conatantly complaining. I believe it was in effort to make her sound younger. Which is rather insulting when you think about it. Mia is also sort of dumb. It isn't exactly hard to figure out that maybe there is a deeper reason as to why people are treating her different. The charectors were very cookie cutter and sort of reminded me of The Real World, the TV show that is, all nationalities and stereotypes were accounted for by the end of the novel.
Then, there is the fact that her being a princess is just a plot device. The real story revolves around how if you change your looks the most popular guy in school will fall for you, but of course he'll be a totall jerk and you'll find out that your guy friend has been in love with you forever and you like him, too. How cliched can you get?!
The content is acceptable for YA readers, but they would be better off reading the Gossip Girls series. It is simular, but with a better plot and charectors.

The entire Princess Diaries is fabulous. I read these books in a day or a day and a half, and I am not a big reader. I just got the 5th one and am in the middle of readng it. The other four were amazing and I don't see why the 5th wouldn't be. Whatever age you are, you should read this entire series. I highly recommend buying them all nd reading them all at once. These books are amazing and Ihope you get a chance to read them!

I thought this book was very good. It's funny and entertaining enough that you always want to keep reading!
This book is about Mia Thermopolis, a 14-year old outcast whose life changes when she finds out that she is a princess.
Her father, the prince of Genovia, was diagnosed with cancer, making him unable to have any more children; this meant only one thing: Mia is the heir to the throne.
Mia is unwilling to fulfill such a task, making it very hard for her family to turn her into a true princess. However, with much work and perseverence, Mia makes it through training and becomes beautiful and graceful, while in the midst of everything, trying to deal with friends, family, boys, and school.
I really enjoyed reading this book! I would DEFINITLEY reccomend it to girls who are going through their teen years, trying to deal with the things Mia did. I give it 5 stars!

After seeing the movie, The Princess Diaries, and hearing that they were based on a book i right away went out and bought the books. I was stunned that these books were much better than the movie. Reading about a funny teenager who suddenly finds out she's a princess is very entertaining. While reading these books I became so involved that when she started to go out with some (i won't mention just incase some who wants to reads these books) i was so happy that i felt like i was going out with him. I hope that whoever reads this goes out and reads these books. They are truely great books!
